Employment Law

Your job is your livelihood. All employees deserve a working environment where their legal rights are respected and protected. Loss of a job or mistreatment in the workplace can be financially and emotionally distressing or even devastating.

At Smith & Benowitz, our employment lawyers are committed to defending the rights of employees who have suffered injustice at work. When employers violate California or federal employment laws, we help employees fight back against illegal practices and pursue all available remedies.
